Under the influence of these systems, widespread light to moderate rainfall/snowfall accompanied by thunderstorms, and lightning was very likely in the Western Himalayan region until Tuesday.

Scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rainfall was very likely in Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and West Uttar Pradesh. Isolated light/moderate rainfall was expected in north Rajasthan and northwest Madhya Pradesh from Tuesday to Thursday.

A generally cloudy sky with very light rain/thundershowers was likely at a few places in Delhi on Tuesday. A partly cloudy sky with the possibility of very light rain/drizzle was expected on Wednesday.
